Horizon Project seeks input

The Horizon Project Foundation and its development team are contemplating retail and commercial options for the future Horizon District as an exciting transformation  set to begin shortly.

They have partnered with the Office of Health Promotion to engage the MUSC community in this process.

Together we have developed a survey to provide employees and students the opportunity to be part of the conversation about how this transformation can best benefit those who work and study at MUSC. At completion, the district will cover about 25 acres and provide a mix of residences, office and research space, laboratory space, and retail and restaurant options, as well as parking.

This site is located downtown along the Ashley River and adjacent to MUSC.

The vision is that the businesses and retailers who locate here will serve current users and residents as well as those who may choose to be a part of Horizon in the future.

The MUSC community is an important group and this survey is an opportunity for you to help refine the vision.      

A critical component of the master plan is managing parking needs within the site. All existing parking commitments will be provided for throughout all phases of construction. Understanding commuters’ wants and needs will help result in the most user–friendly commuter experience possible. The second major focus of this survey is to collect information on those preferences.

Please take a few minutes to complete this short survey and provide your valuable input on how this exciting new development can best serve you.
